Throughout this season I have kept an eye on the Kings after deep diving them before xmas. I told GP that I thought DMC was uber talented, but that he had so many on and off court issues I wouldn’t want him near my team. GP agreed, but still thought he might be a good person to trade for. Yesterday, he text me and conceded now that the more he watches Demarcus, the more he dislikes him.
There have been trade rumours about my team (Magic) quite a lot, but please Orlando, leave DMC alone! He scored 56 yesterday and his team still lost. That may seem like it is not his fault…. but don’t be so sure….
On that note, some best bets from GP!
2-3 on the Best bets today for a total of 11-14 over the last 5 days.
The Kings are backing up from a double over time loss to the Hornets at home yesterday and travel to Portland today to play their 5th game in 7 nights. That has our spreadsheet picking Portland at home to win that one (including the schedule penalty).
Best bets are tough today due betting agencies not picking a winner for the Clippers Pacers game and Picking the 76ers to win but getting they are also giving them a points start of -1 which would have them as underdogs?????? Go home Vegas your drunk. With no odds set for a couple of games options are light but here goes
Toronto vs Washington
The Raptors are 5 – 0 in their last 5 games with a differential of +11.8, they are 15-6 away from home. The Wizards have been struggling all season, Bradley Beal left their last game against the Celtics with a concussion and is not with the team in Toronto. That scoreline from that last game was a home loss by 25 (TWENTY FIVE!!!) points.
Pick: Raptors -7.0
Portland vs Sacramento
With the two extra periods and travel for the Kings at the back end of a 5 games in 7 nights stretch, you have to think that the Blazers are right to be favourites today.
Pick: Portland -3.0
LA Lakers vs Dallas
The Lakers have struggled to score in recent games. They only average 96.4 ppg for the season (that’s the 4th lowest in the league) but over the last 5 games that has dropped to 93.6 (only the Nets are worse). The Mavericks struggle to score away from home. The average 5.2 points per game less on the road.
Pick: Under 205
